Is a new generation of Kennedy politicians just ahead? Joseph Patrick Kennedy III, the nephew of Ted Kennedy and eldest son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, is quietly eyeing a bid for office.
Young Kennedy, a Boston resident, is interested in the 1982 Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor of Massachusetts. That post has been held for six years by Thomas P. O'Neill 3rd, son of the US House Speaker. O'Neill may run for governor.
